Bonfire Night at Barracks Lane Community Garden


Poster and flyer for the Bonfire celebrations at my local Barracks Lane Community Garden in East Oxford.  Apparently the event was a great success, and the star performer, Nick Cope, has agreed to return for a second performance soon.

This poster was designed to be printed on the super-eco RISO printing press at Oxford GreenPrint.  The first pass was the Orange ink followed a second pass of Black ink on a yellow paper, 100% post-consumer recycled paper.  I’ve fallen in love with the RISO printing press.  It’s a great example of ‘appropriate technology‘ – it uses a sixth of the energy of a modern digital printing press and is best suited to print designs with strong contrast, like text and bold graphics.  Oxford GreenPrint specialise in the RISO – get in touch with them to learn more.
